The Mystery Disappearances of People in Alaska


Alaska has a history of people just vanishing into the wilderness never to be seen again. Sometimes they are found, but often times they stay missing.

When i first met dolly, in January of 2005, her son Richard Thomas Hills had been missing for almost a year. I was working on a story about the phenomenon in Alaska of ordinary people disappearing while doing ordinary things. In Anchorage, the statewide coordinator of search-and-rescue at the time, Lieutenant Craig Macdonald, had told me about some recent cases, including that of Rick Hills. He described the case as tragic for the family but typical of what troopers dealt with almost every day. More than 3,000 people had been reported missing the previous year in Alaska, a state with a population smaller than San Francisco’s.

    5. Zero found. Produce a Bigfoot if you found one.


      If you found a watch you wouldn't cower and not be able to produce it. Why such cowardice with Bigfoot?

      ... I'm not so sure how "cowardice" applies to any enthusiast, but it's nice to see you're trying to expand your vocabulary from toilet jokes.

    7. Produce one of the "plenty" of Bigfoot you found doesn't mean showing me hoaxed photos or videos, it means present a real life Bigfoot.

      Producing a watch you found wouldn't mean showing a fake photo of it. You'd present the actual watch.

      Why the cowardice? Present a real Bigfoot. Go before the media with your real Bigfoot. You'll be an instant millionaire.

      Are you just a coward?

    8. Argh, but you haven't demonstrated that the footage presented are hoaxes... Chop, chop! Let's not look incompetent now!

      Delete
    9. Yes, you're right. Anything you claim is true I must prove false or else it is true. Make sense.

      If you say you own a fleet of lamborghinis I must find out who you are, research your finances, and prove you don't own a fleet of lamborghinis, otherwise you do own them. Makes sense.

    11. 8:45... It merely comes down to one little aspect of basic science. Testing it... If it cannot be shown to be false after testing, it stands.

      Be accountable for your claims, dear boy.

    12. You certainly haven't demonstrated they're real

    13. Imagine the reward money you could collect showing people photos of their lost dogs and then claiming you found their dog.

      Or in you case dubious photos.

      Delete
    14. Of course its all a hoax. If there was a shred of truth to any of it REAL wildlife biologists...you know experts...would be tripping over them selves to study,document and find such a creature.

      Why is that not happening? Because it is just a campfire tale. But people like you have made it a religion.

      Delete
    15. 8:48... I've demonstrated there's evidence, evidence that supports those footage sources provided up top.

      8:50... Yet again, another critical assertion you have to substantiate. Chop! Chop!

    16. Still waiting for you to produce this living, breathing "plenty" of Bigfoot you found. Shouldn't be too hard, having found "plenty".

      Delete
    17. 8:51... You might not be aware (bless), but there are plenty of very qualified wildlife biologists, primatologists, conservationists and anthropologists concerned with this subject... Would you like a list?

      Delete
    18. 8:53... Go and rally around the mainstream community then, kid!

      Delete
    19. Yes of course. Produce your list of the usual suspects. All of them in it for money.

    20. Answer this question:

      If you had a reward for your lost dog and someone showed you a photo of it, would you pay them they reward money because they met the requirement for finding your dog?

And find at least one scientist that supports the ideas that they exist, not to mention a unique species trait that can be attributed to an unclassified type of fishy-person.

    6. I'm sure that if you had a reward for your lost dog and someone showed you a photo of one, you'd pay the reward, because showing you a photo of your dog means they found it, right?


      In your case, you're showing hoaxed photos and saying you found Bigfoot.

      Delete
    7. But that brings a burden... You can't claim that a photograph is a hoax and then not provide substance to that claim. In your case, try and get some actual satisfaction for once and find a god damn monkey suit... Should be far easier than finding a "Bigfoot".

      Delete
    8. I repeat: I'm sure that if you had a reward for your lost dog and someone showed you a photo of it, you'd pay the reward, because showing you a photo of your dog means they found it, right?


      Yes, you're right. Anything you claim is true I must prove false or else it is true. Make sense.

    9. 8:43... Be difference is that there is no requirement for dogs to be proven to mainstream science, therefore a reward in this instance equates to a consorted effort by mainstream science. Just to add, some primatologist have had ten fleeting glimpses of chimps for tracking them closely for 20 years.

      Like I said kid, you must test science. If a critic asserts there is evidence to dismiss a source, he bears the burden to prove that. Man up.

    11. Your question was answered, dear boy... There is no question as to the existence of the dog in the first place. Though the evidence is no less important, the outcome is not the same... You offer a reward for one, you use a consorted mainstream scienific effort to track and bag the other... Not that I want anything of the sort, of course.
